NEW PROGRAMS 

Oakwood College and Alabama A & M University have entered into an agreement 
whereby an undergraduate student will attend Oakwood College for two or more academic 
years and Alabama A & M University for two more academic years. The specifics of the 
program are outlined in this section. After completing the programs of the two cooperating 
institutions (to be accomplished in no less than 4'/2 years) the student shall be awarded a 
Bachelor of Natural Sciences Degree from Oakwood College and one of the designated 
Bachelor of Science Degrees from Alabama A & M University. 

Dual degree candidates are eligible to seek any of the following degrees from Alabama A 
& M University: 

B.S. in Crop Science 
B.S. in Horticulture 
B.S. in Soil Science 

The program is developed and coordinated by the Department of Biology at Oakwood 
College and the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Studies at Alabama A 
& M University. These academic units have programs beyond the scope of this dual degree 
program. Students are encouraged to become familiar by reviewing the catalogs of the 
respective programs as well as by meeting and discussing career plans with the faculty of 
the respective departments. The degree programs covered under this agreement and 
career opportunities associated with these programs are described below: 

Crop Science 

The curriculum in Crop Science is designated to give the student a strong background in 
biological and life sciences in preparation for either a terminal degree or graduate study. 
Crop Science majors may qualify themselves for positions in the following fields: technical 
level or sales positions in federal, state, university or private organizations relating to 
agricultural research, agribusiness, crop improvement, farm management, agricultural 
extension and in international agriculture. They can also qualify to become crop inspectors 
or other regulatory agencies positions. 

Horticulture 

The curriculum in Horticulture is designed to provide a broad orientation to all aspects of 
horticulture: Floriculture, Ornamental Horticulture, Vegetable Crops, Fruit Crops and 
Landscaping. 

Horticulture majors may qualify themselves for positions in the following fields: 
Commercial nursery and greenhouse management, landscape services, public parks, 
private estates and golf courses, federal and state agencies, seed production industries, 
retail sales, agricultural supply industries and in international agriculture. Many students, 
after completing this degree, pursue graduate programs in the area of their interest in 
horticulture. 



Soil Science 

The curriculum in Soil Science is designed to give the student a strong background in the 
physical and biological sciences, along with its application to the area of Soil Science. 
Training in Soil Science prepares the student to fill positions in research, extension, various 
government services, industry, business, or to pursue graduate work in soils or related areas. 
Soil scientists can qualify to fill openings in land reclamation, soil conservation, soil survey, 
land management, fertilizer and chemical industries, with inspection and regulatory 
agencies and in international agriculture.
